Is there a “right” time to enroll a young child or baby in gymnastics lessons? Believe it or not, children can begin learning the fundamentals of gymnastics as early as 6 months old.

Parents can also bring in their little ones for organized play during Tumble Tots! This is for little gymnasts aged 18-36 months. Parental participation is required for both of these classes. Once little gymnasts grow a little older, they can begin some of our hour-long classes! All-By-Myself classes are designed for toddlers to 3 year olds.
